Real Betis, Villarreal keen as Alderete announces Valencia departure

Omar Alderete is leaving Valencia.

The defender spent last season on-loan at VCF from Hertha Berlin.

However, Valencia will not be taking up his €7.5m permanent option.

“I would have liked to have continued here, but that's how it is sometimes in football. I wholeheartedly wish the club all the best for the future," he said.

Villarreal and Real Betis are keen to keep Alderete in Spain next season.
